MAC KEEPSAKES/PLUM EYE BAG


I'm not usually one to go after new MAC releases, as the colors can be so out there, and well, you know me - I love my neutrals. But I never say never, because when I spotted the Heirloom collection in stores, so many of the colors had new neutral written all over them. Being the brown eyed gal that I am, any deep purple tones usually complement my dark peepers and help them to pop a bit, so naturally, I "needed" the Keepsakes/Plum Eye Bag

I had been on the lookout for a new mascara and I've heard good things about the MAC offering before, so this was like killing two birds with one very pretty stone. The set also comes with the Powerpoint Eye Liner in Permaplum and the Extra Dimension Eye Shadow Duo containing the shades Triple Impact and Round Midnight, all nestled into this adorable limited edition cameo encrusted black glitter bag. I think that this is the perfect edited eye pairing for a chic and vampy look that's different from my usual browns in a really good way. These shadows are nothing short of amazing and I'm not sure if MAC sells them on their own or if they are a collection release, but I would advise you to get your hands on them before they're gone. The colors really do have a multidimensional sheen to them and I have been using the pearlescent shade to highlight the inner corner of my eyes nonstop since I purchased this set. 

With the holidays on the horizon, I can't help but rate all my products based on their ability to come into play for a Christmas look. Yes, I know this wouldn't work in tandem with your classic golden eye and red lip pairing, but what about a bold metallic plum eye and a neutral lip combo? Now that could be a new winter weather classic.

  1. This was the one set from their holiday collection that caught my eye! The In Extra Dimension shadow formula is only trotted out for LE collections. I wish they'd make them permanent because they're always raved about for their creamy texture and color payoff.
    Love the new look, btw!

  2. Those two shades are stunning! Purples are definitely shades I need to experiment more with. I've heard great things about that mascara too!

    1. Yes - it can be hard to venture out of the neutrals box when you have brown eyes. I think these shades would look beautiful on you though!
